Hi all, I am a 27 year old male who recently went travelling in south east Asia. After 3 months I had to return home after being sure I was dying out there.
Having seen my GP I have had all the blood tests done for the relevant diseases as well as normal blood counts but nothing seems to be showing up in my results. I guess I’m just wondering whether this is something that isn’t region specific, the diet out there was very much carb/sugar based with a lot less protein intake than I would be used to back home.
My symptoms are the following: constant dizziness/vertigo(at bad times), poor balance, fluctuating headaches, blood shot eyes, tinnitus, sinus infection, palpitations, constant muscle and joint pains, hair loss and thinning on most of body as well as hair going grey too. It also might be worth mentioning all my bones make a cracking noise when I move but especially my feet and legs.
A list of blood tests I’ve had are below, thank you so much for reading my message. Hopefully someone can give me some hope as I’m in a lot of pain.
Full blood count
Blood film (foreign travel)
Malaria parasites (I was given a 10 day course of antiobiotics as some cells were showing up but the doctor said this was very much precautionary and it wasn’t malaria)
Full sexual health check
Calcium (Bone Profile)
B12 and Folate
Electrolytes and creatinine
Gamma Glutamyl transferase
Liver function tests
